The President of the group, Yerima Shettima, said the arrest of Kanu would a clear signal to Yoruba Nation agitator, Sunday Igboho.
Shettima while speaking with Daily Post further stated that Kanu’s arrest would see agitators learn not to resort to violence.
He added that Nigerians that have resorted to violence while agitating for separation should be dealt with.
Shettima when asked if Kanu’s arrest was a message to other agitators, said: “This is a clear message to the likes of Igboho, I’m happy that this happened. It’s a clear message to all those who think that they can undermine the sovereignty of this nation and get away with it.”
“Agitation, I have no problem with it but when it turns out to be violent against innocent citizens, then anyone found wanting should be dealt with decisively.”
“I urged the court to speedily ensure an accelerated hearing so that Kanu faces the music once and for all.”
“Since he jumped bail and defied to court, there is no need for delays, they should do the needful.”
